10/5 – Lorain Impoundment highlights

Good morning at Lorain with Emil Bacik.  There were four Nelson’s Sparrows again occupying grasses along the impoundment’s western edge.  Lots of other sparrows and a good number of Bobolinks in this same area.  A fem/imm Merlin was also present this morning – posted up in the dead snags along this same edge.  At some point, Bonaparte’s Gulls started moving in good numbers, and we ended with 950 birds, but no rarities among them.  Just in time for the Vermilion shindig, Wooly Bears are out in force!  I’ve never seen so many – especially on the north and east sides of the impoundment.
